ASRock presents Anniversary motherboard line

Fans of ASRock motherboards and Intel technology will have two more options to consider when looking for new hardware – the Taiwanese motherboard maker ASRock has released two new motherboards that commemorate both the Pentium G3258 20th Anniversary edition processor and 20years since the release of the original Intel Pentium processor.

The new ASRock solutions are called Z97 Anniversary and Z97M Anniversary and specifically target the unlocked Intel Pentium G3258 processor that was released a short while ago. To make it easier on novice overclockers the Taiwanese company provides the Pentium Anniversary Boost technology that allows overclockers to experience the easiest overclocking ever by just pressing a button. ASRock claims the two new motherboards will take the 3.2 GHz chip to 4.2 GHz and beyond with no problems at all. Of course this also depends on the chip but at least the motherboard makes the entire process easy.

Apart from easy overclocking the motherboards offer high quality components, premium alloy choke and black PCBs. In particular the Z97 Anniversary offers four DDR3 DIMM slots, support for all LGA 1150 processors currently on the market along with support for the upcoming 14 nm Broadwell chips, Gigabit LAN, 7.1-channeled audio, one PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot, three PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots and two legacy PCI slots. The Z97M Anniversary is a more budget-oriented solution. While it also offers support for all LGA 1150 processors currently on the market along with support for the upcoming 14 nm Broadwell chips and four DDR3 DIMM memory slots, the motherboard has just a single PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot and two PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots. There’s also a 5.1-channeled audio solution on board. ASRock offers a ton of software with these solutions too.

No word on pricing but given the overclocking nature of both motherboards they are not likely to be that cheap.
